Drawing upon research from a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) study looking at connections between lifelong learning, citizenship, and the craft of writing fiction, this paper explore the possibilities of fostering critical literacies and democratic learning opportunities. The paper explores the concept of critical literacies, discusses some of the insights provided by participants in the study with regards to how a critical approach to understanding fiction may foster democratic learning, and discusses strategies for fostering critical literacies amongst learners.
